The Birth of Art

Thomas W Case

A lot can be
when you pull 
the covers over your
head, and just listen.
Tune out all the
distractions and bullshit.
Let the silence guide you.

Do you see all the
colors whirling around in
your mind?
The greens and the reds?
The indigo and violet?
They are thoughts forming.
Grand, artistic, unbridled thoughts.

People will desperately
try to distract you, and keep
you from this place.
They are a stranger to it.
Phones will go off.
The crowd will knock
at the door,
don't answer, they will
always be there.

Your job is to create in
your beautiful, dark womb.
There is a spark,
electric alchemy going on.
Don't question it.
You are an artist,
and you are giving birth

    Love this to bits how very true. Your first stanza is absolutely wonderful but they all are in terms of speaking to your reader she is listening loudly ❤️ the true birth of art.

  • Introverted Sage

    In a world that never stops moving it's hard to find these places or find the time.
    Sometimes, in the loudest of rooms though - this 'silence' will scream at you until you pay attention to it.
    Great write!
